On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank welcomes Graham Veale, head of the Religious Education department at City of Armagh High School, Northern Ireland, to discuss his book, New Atheism: A Survival Guide. Graham explains the difference between science and scientism, the supposed conflict between science and faith, and the fact that apologetics clarifies good reasons to believe the gospel and goes hand in hand with evangelism.
Hank and Graham also address Richard Dawkins’ assertion that the world would be a better place without God, despite any evidence to the contrary. Although Dawkins refuses to look at the evidence and offers no response to those who question his dogmatism, Graham argues that the complexity and precision of the universe provides overwhelming evidence for God.
In the final segment, Graham articulates the distinguishing aspects of new atheists, what it means to really believe in a God who has unlimited power and freedom, as well as the reason for writing his book in an accessible fashion so younger readers would have real answers when faced with attacks on Christianity.
